An Indian paramilitary soldier throws stones at Kashmiri Muslim protesters during a strike called by the All Party Hurriyat Conference, in Srinagar, India, yesterday. Government forces fired tear gas to quell hundreds of demonstrators who were protesting against the assault of a senior separatist leader who was shot and critically wounded by gunmen. The province of Kashmir is riven with ethnic and religious tensions, and enmity between people who identify with the three countries – India, Pakistan and China – with interests in the region.
